Do we live in an erroneous reality?

How do we see/feel? We see or feel by duplication.

Particles with similar arrangement will be seen or felt as same. Whereas particle with different arrangement will be seen or felt different.

But we don't see everything e.g. air which is still made up particles. It's because our eyes which itself made up of particles receive the photons or particles and brain which is again made up particles has developed a mechanism to only see photon particles of the visible spectrum (i.e seeing only a particular type of arrangement). Leaving that arrangement we cannot see anything.

But how can brain made up of particles only see photon particles arrangement? It is because of the arrangement of particles in our brain i.e receptors. As we all know a particular arrangement only fits with another particular arrangement just like lock and key. But it can be erroneous to some extent, same as we can make duplicate keys which are not exactly the same (i.e. remains within the error range).

Is free choice related to the degree of error we make? Can we change our reality?

I think yes because we are free to choose the amount of error. We/particles are free to choose both 8 and 9 in the above diagram even though they are not same. So you can say it either 8 or 9, that depends on you, and choosing is random.
Even force between the quantized particle depends upon its number (number of the quantized particle).   For example force between sun and earth depend upon its sizes. So the force (as it's not quantized) can never be perfect.

Whatever we measure is change (that is one is not same as other, one taken as a reference to compare other), and we can make the error to say that both are same, even though they are not, if it is in a range of making an error (±).

Is universe deterministic? What do you think?

Is universe deterministic?

Condition 1:

Imagine, a number of particles are finite in the universe, also, take the number of arrangement as finite.
Now imagine sides represent all the possible arrangement of a dice. Now start throwing the dice. As the number of possible arrangement  is huge, the probability of predicting the next arrangement is almost zero.
As you can see in the real world also, we cannot go from one state to another just randomly.

Condition 2:
Imagine, a number of particles are infinite, so the number of arrangement will also be infinite. Also assume that all arrangements are equally likely to occur. Thus, probability of predicting the next arrangement is zero as  a number of arrangement is infinite. So the result is same as condition 1

As we can see, we can disapprove the first two conditions by looking at our real world.

Condition 3:
Now imagine a number of particles are finite, also the number of arrangements are finite. But all arrangements are not equally likely to occur.
It requires little imagination
At each state, it can be only at one position (x), and got to another position (y). The probability of going from one position to another is 1.
Now image all the particles, I am taking three particles for simplicity.
Now look at state A and state B.

We may here argue that why Y position is towards right (i.e the position of Y is determined), it can be on left, top etc. that is it can be somewhat random.
Before saying it as random, we have to ask, what determines the particle going from X to Y.
The answer should be obviously other particles. So going from X to Y is deterministic, as a result, the complete universe can be deterministic.

Condition 4:
The number of particles is finite, but the number of arrangements is infinite. But all arrangements are not equally likely to occur.

The result is similar to condition 3, but the consequence will be time will run till infinite, not circular or repetitive like condition 3. This is also compatible with the real world, as space is just one (particles are many), so, number or arrangements will be infinite.

Condition 5:
The number of particles is infinite, so the number of arrangements is infinite. But all arrangements are not equally likely to occur.
The result may be same as condition 4.

If universe would be unpredictable, then we would never make predictions. We could not ask a question such as how, why, etc because it's not predictable.
Our universe can only be as it is because it is deterministic
or semi-deterministic (if there is a minute  ± error in the motion from going one state to another).
(e.g. instead of going point position for X to Y accurately, Y position is spread with femtometer radius of sphere, and particle can stay anywhere within Y)
So, the message is in order to bring a change, it should be a collective effort for lots of particles, that is lots of particles has to make desired error (or free choice that is limited to e.g. a femtometer), to have desired future we want. 

You have to make the initial conditions right and also continue the right conditions (which is easy) to have desired results. Evolution has done most of its job to bring initial condition right, we only need to continue the right conditions.

Particle I mean quantum fluctuations that occupy some space.
